Introducing Up Doune

18 February 2015
Up Doune is a 1985 Beneteau First 345 bought by myself and lovely wife Carol back in October 2010.

I crewed on this boat for the previous 15 years and when the skipper said he was selling, I seized the oppurtunity. Over Sunday dinner I mentioned the idea to Carol to be greeted with an emphatic "No" quoting money, houses, debts all as reasons it was not going to happen.

I didn't mention it again until a week later, again at Sunday dinner Carol said "So tell more about this boat" ........ hook line and sinker I knew we were on our way......

So why "Up Doune" ... well I'll let you find out for yourselves with the help of Mr Google but it's a reference to Doune Speed Hillclimb and a few of my achievements in a previous life ;)
